As such, they can now offer the Attivo Networks ThreatMatrix Deception and Response Platform to its customers requiring continuous threat detection and response against information security attacks.

The Attivo Networks ThreatMatrix Deception-Based Threat Detection and Continuous Response Platform provides real-time threat detection and attack forensic analysis for accelerated incident response and remediation. It is designed to provide in-network and endpoint detection of cyberattacks from all threat vectors including advanced, stolen credential, ransomware and phishing attacks that have evaded traditional prevention systems. Additionally, the platform empowers partners to build upon the value of their client’s current security infrastructure with attack information sharing and integrations for automated incident response. The solution aligns to Gartner’s Adaptive Security Architecture of Predict, Prevent, Detect and Respond (Gartner, February 2016)* and strengthens the organization’s security posture with early detection of threats, accelerated incident response, and strengthening of prevention systems based on attack information gathered while deceiving and engaging attackers.

“It is Attivo Networks vision to become the most trusted partner for cybersecurity solutions,” said Ray Kafity, Vice President of Attivo Networks Middle East, Turkey and Africa, META  “Ixtel’s deep security heritage and strategic client partnerships extends our ability to assist our META clients cyber risk and security needs. We are delighted to have ixtel join the Attivo Networks Channel Partner Program and look forward to expanding the powerful set of services and solutions they have today.”

“Investment in a preventive security stack is crucial to harden the security framework for government and enterprise sectors in UAE and GCC countries. That said, we still require a unique deceptive technology that safeguards critical IT and OT in case of an infiltration. Attivo is uniquely providing deception-based threat detection to our customers to complement their existing investment in preventive technologies against today’s advanced threat landscape.” Said Mehdi Quraishi, Chief Executive Officer of ixtel technologies.
